We had the most wonderful dinner experience for my 50th birthday tonight. Lorenzo and team took amazing care of us. The food was spectacular - pesto rigatoni from the cheese wheel, hot antipasto with eggplant rolatini and cheese tortellini, beet salad, mushroom soup, filet diane,...sea bass and the cauliflower and of course the grand marnier souffle. And all the special touches and drinks were amazing. This is the finest dinner experience in Florida and definitely in the top 10 of the US. It is magical. We’ll be back soon.More

Our very favorite, we visit every time we come to Orlando. Superb food, perfectly prepared. Be sure to order the soufflé when you place your dinner order, takes 30 min, & it’s amazing. Impeccable, old world service, never rushed. A dining experience!

This place reminds me of old New York. If you are looking for intimate, exquisite, fine dining that is second to none. This is the place! The drinks were also the finest crafted drinks I have ever had. No children allowed (so you know they...are serious about the ambiance). Its pricey; dinner for two with drinks is going to run you about $300-$350 with tip. Make sure you ask the price of any specials, as you don't want to be sticker shocked when the bill arrives. You won't leave mad though, as the Chef is an amazing artist, and has delicious crafty taste points offered between meals to show off his talents. A must to visit.More

We had dinner there last night. I have eaten in many fine dining restaurants especially in Europe but have NEVER had an experience as wonderful as this!! To say the ambience, service, and FOOD are exceptional is completely inadequate!! It was ALL FABULOUS!!! Every person...treated us as their personal guest. It’s a romantic restaurant, the decor is dark and romantic, the service is way above 5 star and the food is sumptuous !! Plus, they have a wonderful pianist playing while you savor every bite!!! This is hands down THE BEST restaurant in Orlando or anyplace I have ever eaten!!! We will definitely be returning!!!More

Just like my title explains, we have had the pleasure of eating at some of the best restaurants in the world and we are seldom surprised with something unique and special. Chatham’s did just that; a magical experience, amazing food, some of the best service...in the world all while being creative and allowing us time and space for a romantic dinner. When you book they may require a credit card to hold your reservation. Please keep in mind that your table is YOURS for the evening so you never feel rushed. But that can create a hardship for the restaurant if someone no-shows leaving the space empty. They will also ping you many times to confirm you are in fact coming and also remind you when your table is ready for seating. The exterior is quaint with twinkling lights surrounding it; the interior is cozy, candle lit, romantic and inviting. Bottles of expensive wine are from floor to ceiling with a piano right near the entrance. The live music is just loud enough to hear but not so loud that you have to speak over it; which we find that balance difficult to come by in most places. So much so, we tend to avoid places that host live music because we know we will be shouting at one another to be heard. You can bring your own wine for a modest $35 corkage fee although we selected wine off the menu. They host a full bar and they also have an expansive wine list with some of the most knowledgeable waitstaff you will ever encounter. They move like a single, fluid team, each one making your evening special. For starters we had the caviar; served with quail eggs, cream and small bellinis. It was excellent and delicious! Next we tried the escargot; this was the only miss of the night. The escargots are served in a wonton type shell; the snails are much too delicate for this shell and the shell was also not cooked properly; undercooked in many places and served on a mushroom doused in balsamic. The dish would be so transformed if they used a more delicate puff pastry. The bread was next and it was extraordinary along with a palette cleanser of what tasted of raspberries and lemon; I could have eaten a bowl of this. My husband got the duck and it was cooked beautifully and I got an appetizer for dinner; the eggplant. For me personally, I can only eat so much and I wanted room for desert. The eggplant was good, rolled with ricotta cheese but looking back I would have been more adventurous. To finish the meal we had a souffle that was to die for. The meal was special from start to finish and we were local we would go all the time. Bravo to the kitchen and the staff and thank you for a special night.More

If you are looking for a great place for fine dining in the Orlando area I want to recommend Chatham’s Place in the Sand Lake area of town. It is our favorite “Worldwide” restaurant!!!! And I mean that, when we travel we always find great...restaurants, but we always say none of them beats Chatham’s. My wife and I have been coming here since 2012! They only have one seating per night so you are not rushed out after two hours (we are usually there 3-4 hours). Chef Tony not only is the head Chef he is also the owner and goes every morning to his farm to pick fresh herbs for the night’s offerings. He is always developing new things for specials for each night. We went last week to celebrate my birthday!!! They have an awesome person, Bob, playing the piano nightly. I did miss the “Happy Birthday” song when the dessert was delivered with a candle. Hope that comes back….. Check them out! All of the staff are great and pleasant from the time you walk in until you leave! We love Lorenzo taking care of us, especially how he presents the Specials for the night!!!!!More

For desert the peacan macadamia pie or key lime pie...are delicious. Service is professional. Upscale refined ambiance. Go out of your way to come here.More

This place is amazing. Very intimate, upscale interior, with the warmest welcome from every single staff member. Sergio greeted us at the door and apologized that we were seated at a high top table, although we were grateful to have any table as we made...the reservations earlier that day. It was a last minute choice, based solely on the Trip Advisor ranking, and it was a fabulous choice! Dinner was phenomenal-every course was impeccably served & distinctly flavored, cooked to perfection. The penne pesto (served table side) was the best pesto we’ve had in a long time. My husband enjoyed the grouper with crab, and I had the chicken a la Bruce. It was so tender my husband didn’t believe it was chicken! There were so many little touches (the amuse bouche, the heated plates, the limoncello at the end of our meal, the delightful piano player) that really made this an outstanding experience. Hugo, our server, was lovely and attentive. Peter the sommelier helped us select an outstanding bottle of wine, and the only negative I can say is that the restaurant he recommended for our dinner the next night (on property at the Ritz Carlton/JW Marriott) was nothing in comparison to our Chatham’s Place experience.More

I'm not a vegetarian. If you ever have a question about a restaurant's menu, I advise to call and inquire. A Caesar salad is always good enough for me.
